Die Zeitbasierten Medien laden zum Gastvortrag von Katrina Daschner.

Katrina Daschner is an artist and filmmaker. In 2022 she had her most comprehensive exhibition to date called „BURN & GLOOM! GLOW & MOON! Thousand Years of Troubled Genders” at Kunsthalle Vienna, showing her works from 1990 to the present. She will give a talk about her queer, gender-fluid and feminist artistic practice across film, art and performance.

Daschner works with a variety of closely related media, including sculpture, textiles, music, performance, community work and film at the heart of her artistic practice. Daschner will show excerpts of the decade-spanning short film series „Hiding in the Lights“ and her most recent film installation “Golden Shadow”. She will talk about how her films take shape and how they are presented in art spaces and discuss questions of queer solidarity and desire.

Katrina Daschner is a German-born artist living in Vienna since the 90ies. In her projects, she primarily investigates sexuality, power structures, and queer-feminist (body) politics, as well as the transfer of theatrical acts and performances into the context of exhibitions and films. She presents her projects in galleries and museum, at film festivals, and in theatres.

Daschner studied sculpture and transmedia art at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and has founded and hosted performance spaces such as Salon Lady Chutney and CLUB BURLESQUE BRUTAL. Between 2003 and 2008, she was part of the band SV DAMENKRAFT. Daschner has taught at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and was a theory curator at Tanzquartier Vienna (TQW), a centre for contemporary choreography and performance. Her work has won awards like the Otto-Mauer-Preis, the Diagonale Film Prize for Innovative Film, the Outstanding Artist Award for Experimental Film, and many more.
